    I got it as well. I'm not too worried though since I did get the mailer saying I was indeed receiving one.

    Re: Stimulus Check

    When I clicked on the site Raisor posted and entered my info it told me this:

    "You should receive a notice showing the amount of your payment. Please hold on to it because you will need it when you prepare your 2008 tax return."


    Are they counting this as earned income that I'll have to claim next year?

    Re: Stimulus Check

    Can I just give it back then? I did nothing to earn this, except live in a weak economy. I don't really need this money, and I don't want to have to pay extra taxes on it next year. So basically, I'm getting my tax return for next year early, and won't get anything in 2009. That's nice.

    My understanding is that the stimulus is NOT taxable income.

    http://www.factcheck.org/askfactchec...t_taxable.html

    ....here's a random link that says so.


    And here's the IRS FAQ

    http://www.irs.gov/newsroom/article/...182003,00.html

    It is a CREDIT based on your 2008 return. NOT an anticipated refund. What that means is that if you didn't qualify in 2007, you may still qualify for the credit NEXT Year.

    Re: Stimulus Check

    Directly from oneupper's IRS link:

    Q. Is my stimulus payment taxable?

    A. No. You will not owe tax on your payment when you file your 2008 federal income tax return. But you should keep a copy of the IRS letter you receive later this year listing the amount of your payment.

    Q. If my stimulus payment is not going to affect my 2008 tax refund or increase the tax I owe next year, why is it I need to retain the letter that lists how much I received?

    A. In the event you do not qualify for the full amount on your 2007 return but you do on your 2008 return, you will need to have the letter as a record of the amount you previously received. [New 4/11/08]

    Q. Will the payment I receive in 2008 reduce my 2008 refund or increase the amount I owe for 2008?

    A. No, the stimulus payment will not reduce your refund or increase the amount you owe when you file your 2008 return.
    And even if was taxable, we'd still come out ahead; someone in the 25% bracket would owe $150 more in taxes next year from the $600 check he got, but that's still $450 to the good. But luckily, it's not taxable.

    Re: Stimulus Check

    Okay, I feel like an idiot because I don't understand that really at all, but if IslandRed says it's all good then I won't worry.

    Well, of that passage I quoted, the first six words were all anyone really needed to read.

    Re: Stimulus Check

    already spent mine I guess, but I haven't got it yet. I have so much money going out since I bought this house that I am going crazy. Everyone told me what a great investment buying a home is, but I am questioning that right now. I had a lot more fun before I had a mortgage payment.
